Make them flush via baffle plate, mitigate SIBR.

I'm running into a situation where my LR speaker are getting really close to my corners in a 13.3" wide room. If I move them closer to the edge of the 92" wide CIH screen inside or outside supports for the mask start to get in the way. I only have 24" of false wall to work with, and if I put the LR speakers equilateral from the listening position that puts them 20" from the side wall. Any reccomendations or up to date reading materials I should look into? I'm not too familiar with baffle walls or the corner placement you're showing.

Absorption in rear theater wall

Hi all,

Looking for some opinions/thoughts.
adding treatment to the back of my theater and my panels are just around 3.5" thick. I was going to put 2" of rockboard 40 with about 1.5" of air space.
Alternatively the supplier has ROckboard 60 which is 3"...leaving me with roughly .5" air space.

Thoughts on what is best? rock board 40 2" with 1.5" airspace or rockboard 60 3" with .5" air space.

Everything I read says the thicker the better...
Also, OC703 is not an option for me as I cannot get it locally, and I checked the coefficients on both products and they are close to identical really...

my room is 15.5 x 27'

rear seats are just over 3 feet from the back wall with the panels coming out 3.5"

thanks guys

I put my towers wide, almost to the corners. They’re also very close to the back wall. I have Linacoustic in corners and back wall. No bass traps.

I find the soundstage good, but now my bass seems overpowering. Not as tight and clear as before.

Is it wrong to have them very close to back wall? There’s no rearward firing driver.

The only other thing I can think of is adding corner bass traps?
